SUPPORTERS of Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice are going cupcake crazy to raise vital funds.

The North Anston hospice is urging people to bake a cake or a tray of muffins or cupcakes, and sell them for £1.

Children at the hospice, including 14-year-old Courtney Allen, from Rotherham, have already started taking part in the Love to Bake campaign.

The hospice, which cares for youngsters with shortened life expectancy from across South Yorkshire, needs to raise £3 million each year to continue its work, with no statutory government funding.

Sarah Champion, chief executive of Bluebell Wood, said: “It’s such a simple idea, but everyone who gets involved will be helping us to bring a smile to the face of a local child with a shortened life expectancy, as well as supporting their families.”

Money raised can be donated online at www.bluebellwood.org or taken in to the charity’s shops.
